L’Arctique se réchauffe depuis plus longtemps que ce que l’on croyait – Regard sur l'Arctique. How One Inuit Sculpture Links Two Very Different Parts of the World. I look at Inuit art every day and when I saw this sculpture by Tutuyea Ikkidluak (1962–1989) I was immediately struck by its uniqueness.
A thin, bald man with nothing but a cloth wrapped around his waist is not typical among the fur-clad hunters, braided mothers and transforming animalian spirits of Inuit lore. When I looked closer at the details of the artwork and saw the title Starving Ethiopian, I thought, “This must have been made in the ’80s,” and vividly remembered the imagery of starving people in commercials on TV when I was growing up.
When Ethiopia was hit by a devastating famine that lasted from 1983–1985 and affected Ethiopian people for decades, we only had a few channels in the North and international aid commercials are one of the things I remember—outside of watching my favourite cartoons and Takuginai. I didn’t realize how widely that kind of aid campaigning really affected Inuit across Inuit Nunangat until I saw this piece.

In Russia's Far North, a Lone Group of Neanderthals May Have Been the Last of Their Kind. For some 200,000 years, Homo sapiens and Neanderthals coexisted on Earth.

That’s when most archaeologists think our evolutionary cousins went extinct, based on exhaustive reviews of radiocarbon dates associated with Neanderthal fossils and artifacts.

Histoire des Inuits. Inside the Mind of “Tattooed Woman” This sculpture, Tattooed Woman (c.1965), looks as though it would weigh a ton.
Besides the obvious—the sheer mass of a carving this size—I am intrigued by the intangible meanings this figure carries. All the lived experiences that make her who she is. In Inuktitut I would call her silatujuq—wise, talented, rational, intuitive and an expert in all things. The sculpture depicts a woman in her amauti, which she would have handcrafted with knowledge passed down to her from her mother and likely her grandmother. Her piercing eyes tell a story of where she’s been and what she has gone through.

How Tim Pitsiulak’s Work is Connected to the Land. This Eerie Whale Bone Alley in Siberia Was Erected By Natives a Long Time Ago and We Are Only Guessing Why - Earthly Mission. A stretch on the northern tip on remote Yttygran Island in Siberia has become a macabre kind of tourist destination, and it’s easy to see why.
Enormous whale ribs, jawbones, ribs and vertebrae stand horizontal in the ground forming an eerie alleyway. There are only guesses as to what its original purpose was, but it definitely stands as one of the weirdest places in the world. Consisting of hundreds of whale bones, mainly jawbones, ribs, and vertebrae, Whale Bone Alley is thought to have been created in the fourteenth or fifteenth century by a cooperative group of native Inuit tribes.
Many of the bones (some in excess of five metres high and weighing 300 kg) were placed in excessive rows along the shore giving the site its evocative name.
